This book answers a need for a handy resource of competitions that stimulates students and supports learning. Through carefully placed quips and aphorisms, the authors have lightened and focused a potentially dry subject into readable information. It encourages students to have pride in their abilities, refine them and reach for their potential, comparable to those of athletes.
